The 爆裂藤蔓 is a 困难模式 魔法武器 that fires a 24 tile-long snaking vine projection that lingers for several seconds, traveling through 物块s and infinitely piercing 敌怪. It is a late 困难模式 upgrade of the 魔刺 and 魔晶碎块, having a 14.29% chance to be dropped by 世纪之花.
The Nettle Burst scores a rapid succession of up to 9 hits on enemies (compared to the Vilethorn's 7 hits). Each hit delivers the weapon's full 28 damage, for a possible total of 252 damage inflicted on any enemy that remains in its affected area for its full duration. Including critical hits without accessories, the average damage would be around 340.
Like the Vilethorn, the Nettle Burst produces minuscule 击退 for each of its rapid hits. This tends to have the effect of nearly freezing enemies in place for the duration of each swing. Enemies that are immune to knockback do not have their movement impeded.
Its best 修饰语 is 神话.
- Its ability to pass through solid blocks and pierce unlimited enemies allows players to wall themselves off from most threats and still deal damage, or hit 蠕虫 type enemies while they are inside walls. Its infinite piercing property is also useful against enemies with multiple parts or minions, such as 毁灭者.
- Compared to the Vilethorn, the Nettle Burst deals a little over twice damage, affects an area twice as long, lingers for a slightly longer period, and has a slightly faster use time. Due to the way 防御力 and damage reduction works, however, this doubling in damage results in significantly more damage against Hardmode enemies that would otherwise reduce Vilethorn damage to 1.
